    Great blog! I think I have quite a similar hair journey to you. My hair is curly and was originally very dark. Over the last 2 years I have gone lighter and now very blonde with about 5 months of silver growth. I mostly use the curly girl method. I usually use a low poo shampoo Soothe Plus from OrganicColourSystems, but I’m mixing it up with Kevin Murphy restore as a co wash. I have a very dry and sensitive scalp which I’m trying to find the balance with washing enough and not too much! I’ve just started experimenting with castor oil to help fast growth and scalp too.

    I get really regular trims and deep conditioning treatments (my hairdresser uses organic products, so hopefully not too full of nasties! ) and I definitely eat lots of healthy, natural food too. I think I do notice the lack of conditioner from dark dye and also the fact I’ve had so much bleach to make it blonder. For purple shampoo I’m also trying out aveda blue malva, but I’ve used Kevin Murphy blonde angel conditioner too (really nice).

    Lots of great advice, thanks!

      Thanks for your comment Tanya. I’m sorry for the delay in replying. It’s so lucky you have found a hairdresser that uses organic products and the curly girl method is so inspiring, although sometimes difficult to start at the same time as transitioning to grey. You seem like you know exactly what you are doing to get your hair healthy after years of dyeing etc. Like you say, we are having similar journies 👍😊

    Great advice! I also like to use coconut oil on my hair once every six months or so – it leaves it feeling silly smooth. I’m a huge fan of coconut oil for all kinds of things (makeup remover, occasionally oil pulling, moisturiser, etc) so I’ve always got some in the house!

      Hi Suzy, I’ve only just seen your message from a while back. So sorry for the delay. Omg- I love coconut oils for grey hair as it’s got no colour to it, so there is no risk of staining. It’s great for removing eye makeup too ☺️. Thank you for your comment x

    Do you also use White Hot shampoo and conditioner? I ordered a sample. It’s not blue but it’s supposed to help with the yellow that sneaks in. I live in Atlanta so had to order internationally so I hope it works!

      Hi Leisa, I have used White Hot Hair shampoo in the past with great results, but I have never used the conditioner because I prefer to use conditioners that don’t have silicones in them and I believe the conditioner does have silicones. I would recommend their shampoo, however, to be honest, I have found just as good results using other blue shampoos, in fact, I find that the more pigmented the better. Like you mentioned, it might be worth trying the samples and seeing if it is worth paying the extra charge for delivery etc. I have a new blog out today about washing grey hair that may be of interest to you. I hope that helps.
